Welcome to our new look for This Week In Publishing!
This week our roundup of interesting and noteworthy publishing industry stories focuses on the appointment of the first female editor in chief at The San Francisco Chronicle, why publishers should be worried about a surge in mobile ad spending, how publishers are using content personalization to engage users coming in from social media, The Washington Post's plan to capitalize on its new CMS, and more.
Audrey Cooper was named editor in chief of The San Francisco Chronicle, becoming the first woman to hold that position at the 150-year-old Hearst-owned newspaper. A Huffington Post report noted that the appointment makes Cooper one of only a few women leading editorial operations at top daily newspapers.

Mobile ad spending is taking off, and publishers ought to be paying attention, according to an article from Editor & Publisher. It said mobile spend jumped 76% in the first half of 2014 alone, to $5.3 billion, and reports indicate that some of that money is coming out of print budgets.

Content personalization is helping publishers like The Huffington Post engage "flighty" users coming in from social media, Digiday reported. The site now features a "Suggested for You" sidebar that highlights content for readers based on what they've viewed previously.

A new content management system at The Washington Post may some day be farmed out to other newspapers and media companies, creating "open partnerships" in which stakeholders work together to improve the technology, according to NetNewsCheck
